In addition to all that, Martti has continued his clinical work as a trained pediatrician.
Martti will continue working in Nordic Casemix Centre as Senior Consultant and will keep on sharing his valuable experiences in the casemix field.
As of December 1, 2020, Nordic Casemix Centre will be led by Kristiina Kahur (MD, MPH), who has been working as the Centre's Vice Director from the end of 2018 up until now.
